"Gravity" is somewhat of an abstract concept when you can maintain neutral buoyancy in your "atmosphere" (in this case: the ocean). It's easy to weigh a lot when you don't actually have to support all that weight _with your body._

@Baguette with cheese Sure, but their _experience_ of gravity would be totally different. Humans tend to think of gravity in terms of things going down. A fish - being more concerned with buoyancy in any case - would probably think of gravity in terms of things going up.

buoyancy, i wonder how high can u reach into the skies and drop a nuke into the ocean, how deep it can penetrate before buoyancy affects it from going any deeper then detonates, whats the impact or reach the blast can go further down the ocean..i wonder if any of that is ever measured?... i assume a missile shot downwards in the ocean is no different to a submarine diving to the deepest depths that bouyancy and pressure stops it from continue to dive down?

When I was a child, my parents took me with them on a family vacation to Tahiti. In the airport, my dad got me a book from a newsstand that was an illustrated dictionary of sea creatures. Surprisingly, despite being a book meant for kids, that dictionary contained a vast array of ocean animals that most people have never even heard of. Both the Greenland shark and the vampire squid were in that book, and I still remember them from reading it all those years ago.

From the Greenlands Shark's point of view, it had been swimming around in the deep ocean for a couple of centuries when suddenly, the water started getting warmer. Then plastic appeared everywhere. Finally, on a single day, it felt thousands of shockwaves coming from everywhere. After that, the plastic gradually went away and the water went back to normal temperature, and the greenland shark swam around for a couple of centuries more, wondering what the hell that was.

@Embreis I wouldn't necessarily extrapolate from our experience to those of other creatures. You could say the same thing about a mole. Isn't it disgusted having to live below ground, eating worms all day, being almost blind? Does the mole say to itself every day: Oh I wish I was a rabbit above ground, I could eat green grass all day and see the sun shining? Probably not. A mole evolved to be that way, it doesn't know anything but that life, and it doesn't have the mental capacity to envision something different for itself. I don't think it is unhappy. Having said that, the Greenland shark probably could do without the parasites, even though it doesn't rely on eyesight all that much. Still, parasites suck.

First I hear about the lower calorie need of the giant squid, and I'm like, "Oh, well that's all right, it's just chilling and looking for the occasional provident snack." Then I hear about its crazy slow metabolism, and how it only needs about fifty calories per day, just hiding down there, waiting patiently... somehow, that just made it scarier in the end.

Which is also odd because normally evolution favors use it or lose it and there isn't enough light down there to even use it majority of the time so I would expect them to lose it But if it became more sensitive that's understandable too, but less if they simply enhance other senses and lost their eyes

You forgot to mention the fact that the crustacean that digs into the Greenland sharks eyes acts as a lure so that the Greenland shark gets easier meals even though it makes them completely blind it truly doesn’t change much because the zone they live in receives so little light it doesn’t change really anything for the shark

Interesting thing is that in so low temperatures many chemical reactions are slower or non existing. That would suggest that those creatures not only live longer but they are living slower. I bet that such a gigantic pressure also adds to this effect.

If the aging is slower, then does this mean a reproductive cycle's length is larger? Then does this mean that they did not undergo too much of an evolution? Then does this mean that birth of life on earth can be traced back from them, cuz you know the should've survived meteors and stuff? Then are the prehistoric?

Excellent video - really appreciate the usage of metric measurements. My sole criticism is minor - that various scenes depicting the giant/colossal squids in CGI aren't clearly called out on screen as being CGI. I'm able to differentiate between the real footage and the generated stuff, but it's not always obvious so a sign on screen making it clear is always useful.
I use to have aquariums and I noticed that the same fish when placed in a large aquarium tank grew much larger than the same one in a smaller tank. Could be one reason some grew to enormous sizes .Also the amount of oxygen in the tank can make them grow much larger.

The thing with the Greenland Shark is that they swim into freshwater to shake off the crustaceans - they've been found in the rivers of Quebec, having swam up the seaway to get there, and have been found in the lochs of Scotland. The freshwater lets them shake off the crustaceans, and then they swim back into the sea. They're really, really strange.

The Greenland Shark is my personal favorite shark and fish in general. Their incredibly long lifespans gives them a sense of agelessness.

I can agree, they are really cool sharks, and are also in my top 5 favorite fish. My favorite fish has got to be the gulper catfish though, as they have such a unique biology, and they look like they belong in the deep sea, even though they reside in the rio negro. Gulpers are so unique, as they can eat fish twice their own size, and they are able too because of their expandable belly, much like an angler fish. They are also very strong and of course, nocturnal… i guess that’s why they remind me of a deep sea creature so much. I actully had a gulper catfish, and he was my first fish. I was so fascinated by their biology that I spent hours just watching him swim around. Also, it is so interesting How Greenland sharks live up to 500 years or more, though. I’ve heard of some that have lived till 700!

The interesting thing about the crustacean latching onto the Greenland sharks eyes is that while they do make it blind, the crustaceans actually produce bioluminescence which attracts small animals that the shark will feed off of since anything that is small enough to consider those little crustaceans prey is gonna get eaten by the Greenland shark. So it’s a form of mutualism/symbiosis where the Greenland shark trades one or both of its eyes for better chances at food. Keep in mind that sharks have an excellent sense smell as well and the blindness doesn’t seem to be as much of a negative anymore

We must aspire to place ourselves beyond the human centric pinhole when we contemplate the Universe. Morning Brew pitch at the end worked like magic, never have I signed up to a KZbin ad plug so instantly 🙂

Thank you for releasing this for FREE. Maybe ten years ago, it was tough to get this kind of quality on products that are released freely to the public. Could you cover more of the genesis of the squid and maybe its prime age? The age where it was most abundant and diverse. I know it's probably not as easy to cover something like this because they are soft-bodied but are the beaks different enough from each species that we can tell species apart and maybe guess its behavior?

It's similar to the also counter-intuitive occurrence of island gigantism. In an environment where resources are scarce and living is tough, you wouldn't really expect creatures to become larger than normal, you'd think they'd become smaller to suit the environment more.

@Chris Odom Just to explain a bit further - these type of channels are made with all kinds of stock of pretty stock footage loosly stitched together by a script written by unqualified amateurs. For instance - apart from the species mentioned, the extreme depths do NOT tend to foster gigantic creatures - in fact the exact OPPOSITE is true. - at extreme depths most animals are relatively tiny. The unmanned submersibles that collect specimens rarely snag anything over a few inches long. Huge creatures are much higher up in the water column where they can find he more plentiful food supplies their bulk requires. But iof you just look at the entire presentation, they say nothing you couldn't come up with after reading an entry in an encyclopedia. Fraudulent crap. ] PBS has tons of free quality science material on KZbin. Take care and sorry for that comment ;-)

The Oarfish lives at depths of 200m-1000m, not in the trenches. Same with the Giant Spider Crab which lives at 50m-600m depth. The big red jellyfish lives to a maximum depth of 1500m and the Greenland Shark lives down to a maximum of 2,000m, but only in the tropics - in its Arctic habitat it lives close to the surface.

Something I find quite funny to think about is if the Greenland Sharks had some sort of child protection laws as we do. For most Western countries its 16-18 years old. These guys can't reproduce until around 120-150 years of age. "Sir, that shark is only 96 years old!" Explaining it made it less funny but I still find it quite amusing 😅

Marine Snow may be the most common but there are other sources of energy/nutrients in the deep in the form of geothermal vents and cold seeps. Geothermals are fairly well known, essentially underwater volcanoes, and will form dense colonies of creatures around them. Less well known are cold seeps, where methane and other natural gasses are being releases, which creates communities of organisms who are adapted to make use of it.

That was INCREDIBLE! Years ago, Time Magazine showed a newly discovered species, toward the bottom of the ocean floor. It lived in thousands of pounds of pressure next to a BOILING natural petroleum vent! That environment would kill any Human in a second. Right then I knew that life NOT as we know it is capable of existing elsewhere. Two films that demonstrate that are The Andromeda Strain, (1971) and much more recently, Annihilation (2018). Thank you for this one!

I wonder if the oceans of europa would hold similar wonders, or without the Epipalagic zone, there isnt enough food filtering down from the surface to maintain the layers of ecology, and all we would find were tiny and micro organisms around heat vents.
